... Euchmich the Loathsome looted and pillaged his way around the fifteen seas. He eventually ended up controlling the waters of the entire world, his reputation striking terror into the hearts of men, turning strong giants into whimpering bunnies just by the mention of his name.
... Euchmich has been dead for nearly thirty years. The world has vowed never to let another pirate attain such power, and huge fortresses have sprung up to do battle with pirate scum.
You inherit an old, run-down merchant brig after your father, and while moving into the captain's quarters, you discover your father's diary. Upon reading it you realize that you are Euchmich's grandchild. And this very brig was Euchmich's fabled ship, the Emilia.
You now have the possibility to live up to the family legacy. Set course for your new destiny.
Your goal is to conquer all the seas of the world. In order to do this, you must gain control of the nation capitals surrounding these seas. Unfortunately there are other pesky pirates marauding the waters and you must dispose of them to make sure you get to be the only one to pillage and conquer.
You captain a run-down brig with only one portside cannon and a handful of dubious crewmen. Already branded a pirate, you will be shot on sight by any respectable nation.
As the game begins you find yourself in a somewhat less lively part of the seas, about to plot the course for your next destination."
A lovely coffebreak game for everybody that liked the seafights in "Sid Meier's Pirates". Graphics and sound are nice and there are four difficulty levels to choose from.
